The Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore

This is the 2nd in a planned series of International Meetings on Respiratory Pathogens which aim to be the premier global forum on respiratory viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. The focus will be on recent advances in epidemiology, immunology, diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics, plus clinical management. It will bring together clinicians, public health professionals, scientists and policy makers to learn about respiratory pathogens and discuss the next steps in reducing the burden of these diseases through research and policy initiatives. A full day of parallel sessions will be devoted to providing updates for policy makers to increase their understanding on respiratory diseases and to allow for better research-policy interactions that will accelerate translational research.
